Object found at Happisburgh beach United kingdom from the Cromer forest bed, was unsure whether or not it was a bone or wood fragment, I gave it some force to see if it would snap to see if it was wood it did, but still unsure, when tapped with a hammer it sounds like stone, any advice would be greatly appreciated. 20190105_203122.thumb.jpg.41a8410eb93792efe41b854fa11b5b3b.jpg

Definately bone!  You might be hard pressed to get much further ID, but the shape in the last picture resembles a piece of rib to me.

With the Cromer Forest Bed Formation, aged between 500,000 and 2 million-years-old and stretching from Weybourne on the north Norfolk coast to Kessingland in north Suffolk is rich in fossils, including the 650,000-year-old West Runton Mammoth (or elephant). 

 

My piece of bone was found at West Runton in the shingle on the foreshore.
